Bunky, as I mentioned to you yesterday, all the wing bone calls I've made and passed along to others, don't seem to be very effective! Not one single person who possesses one of my calls has ever mentioned calling in a turkey with it!

I always try one of mine every season, and the couple of gobbler responses never resulted in moving the bird closer. And it could be the weird notes I produce along with reasonable yelps with nearly every try!

Wing bone calls look fine, but they are not at all simple to use, in my opinion.

By the way, I'm still using the French amber flints you sent me years ago.

Berks---while tearing my house apart looking for your number----I found that pack of French Amber flints. There are only 2 left. I shot last week and when I took out the flint it was an Amber I put in last deer season. It looks great after all the shooting,,,,HMMMMM gonna have to find a bunch more of them.

By the way Bunky, if any of your hunting buddies are interested in a wing bone call, I'm still making them. All I require are the three uncut bones from each wing, resulting in a call for the successful hunter, and the other three bones for me.

A couple of times over the years, I've received odorous packages in the mail of two complete wings which may or may not have been previously frozen!

I have read that hen wings make a better call. Is that your opinion? I have made one from a gobbler wing and spigot washer and it sounds ok. Have never called a bird with it. This year so far calls and shotguns are just useless accessories regardless of type!

rugered, I've read that same thing about hen and jake wings making better calls, and maybe that is my problem with unsuccessful attempts trying to call in the spring. I've never had the wings of either, so your guess is as good as mine.

Well, who knows but we never have enough excuses for not killing a turkey! I need to add that one. Wingbone call is from a gobbler!

Once you really learn how to run a Wingbone, a well (and right) made call can be made from hen, jake or gobbler. They're all going to be different pitches, but will all sound like turkeys. Although there is no magic call, the Wingbone is the closest thing at the right times. I'm getting pics and texts weekly for the last two months from the boys down south that killed birds with my Wingbones and Cane Yelpers.

I really like the looks of that Wingbone. Certainly looks well made to me and I love the patina. OP got a good one.
